Art Hack Day Returns to Brooklyn


For hackers whose medium is art and artists whose medium is tech

Long live IDDQD (pun intended): Art Hack Day returns to Brooklyn’s 319 Scholes art space this weekend with over 60 makers, artists, and hackers producing projects around the “God Mode” theme. Asking “What would you do if you were granted the power of invincibility?” participants will have two days to work collaboratively (with the aid of lots of caffeine I imagine) and then showcase their builds for a one-night only exhibition on Saturday starting at 7PM. More details of the event are here.
